Sticky Burr


Book Review:
Title:Sticky Burr
Author:John Lechner
Illustrator:John Lechner

Characters: Sticky Burr, Mossy Burr, Scurvy Burr, Draffle, Oralee.
Plot:He was not like the other Burrs and he was very strange and different.
Problem: The problem  was that he and some other creatures were stuck in a tree that had holes and when they went through they were in a hole that looked like a maze.
Solution: That when they were walking they were walking they were trying to find a way out so they had a plan to follow  Duffle which was Sticky Burrs Friend. After that when they were walking out they found a hole and went through it and was finally free.
Your opinion of the story:
Why I love this story is because it tells us to never ever to believe whatever they say to you and it is not true and to never wander off anywhere that you're not allowed to be. Also that was the 2 lessons I learnt from today.

Cultural day

Wow what a lovely day to do mass. When we finished mass we had to go straight into room 7 so they could do their presentations. I was so excited to go and mark their presentations that they were going to do. Room 7 was studying Europe and Room 6 was studying Asia and my class was studying South America. The first class was Room 7 which I already told you about and when they finished it was morning tea.

After that we had to go and stay inside so we can get ready to say our presentation and I was so nervous, I was shaking the excitedness. I was very shy that I wanted just to watch. Meanwhile when I heard that we were next I was scared because the first group up was Peru and they were almost finished. I was shaking so badly that I couldn’t stop.

Finally it was our turn and we did really well.  Everyone was really impressed with us.

Touch Training


What I’m looking forward to Touch is that we get to play Touch and have a coach that is awesome. I am looking forward to the stuff we will be learning and the  lessons that we take too. I am expecting that if the boys verse the girls then I wish that the girls can go first so we can get a turn at winning.

I think we are doing it so we can be fit and healthy to play other sports that we can play at our school here.
I think I will see a coach and also rugby balls, cones, students and also bags where they put their stuff in and also the NZ Touch Team.

Film Festival

Wow, I was so excited to go to movies on November the 13th 2013. We were going to Sylvia Park movies and it was exciting for me and I couldn’t wait to go to the movies. When I went to school I went to the classroom, I had to go and tell the Teacher that I was here at school so she wouldn’t forget me and leave me at school.
When we were sitting they started the Manaiakalani film festival and I was excited and I couldn’t wait for our one and it started with our one first. After all of it finished the one I liked was Room 7’s one and G.I primary school Room 12, The Revenge. That movie was about a girl who said that she was going to ruin Talia’s dance crew but she didn’t.

What I felt was that the movies this year were better than last years ones because last years one were cool but kind of boring. I felt so very overwhelmed.

Squash

Wow when I went to the hall I was amazed at the wall we were going to play on, it wasn’t the school wall it was a big blue wall.

When we went to the hall after morning tea we were so excited to see our coaches that were going to teach us for our new kiwi sport. I was so excited to meet them and when we went to the hall they looked very cool and we were all very exciting to play with them. The coaches name’s were Michael and Phil, but Phil did the most talking more than Michael. Both of them showed us a demonstration of how to play Squash. They told us if anyone wanted to have a go and Ma’ata put up her hand and said she wanted to have a go at playing squash.

After that we went and  got split into groups and went to different stations and had a go at it. After all that talking we had a turn in the big blue wall first. We kept on losing to each other and it was fun but when Michael said “stop and swap”. Our group had to go to the skills groups with Phil and when we started it was easy but when it went on it keeps on getting harder and harder until when we had a challenge I wasn’t excited because everything was hard but only the first one was easy not the others.

When we finished I was very sad but when they said that they will be seeing us tomorrow I was excited to see them again. I couldn’t wait for tomorrow’s  squash practise and I was so overwhelmed when we finished.
Also what they wear for squash is a squash t-shirts and squash pants and shorts and also they were squash jackets and sport shoes.   
  

Also did you know that the people that are the squash champion’s are Ramy Ashour and also Nicol David.  The person who created squash was a school called Harrow school in about 1830’s.

Duffy Theatre

On an Awesome exciting day we had the Duffy theatre and it was with people in it that was apart of the Duffy theatre program.

We had it in our school hall and the whole school went and we had it after morning tea on the 23th of september. I was so excited to see the performance, it was so interesting when they said the show was about Duffy when he loses his words.

There were characters in the show called Duffy, Scuffy, Afi, Miss lovely words, Miss Rude, Valtra and finally Miss Arthur.

It was so cool how Valtra just came out of nowhere and told Duffy that he wanted to steal his words. He put a device on Duffy’s head and started to download Duffy’s words into his own head.

When Duffy’s mum woke him up he started to say he had the weirdest dream ever and his mum told him to take out the rubbish and he took out his toys instead and even put salt in his Weetbix, it was so funny when that happened.

When he saw his friend he told her what happened. My favourite part was when his friend Afi rapped and got Duffy’s words back. I felt very amazed, it was very funny. I was happy when I left that hall.

Kids for Kids Recount

On an awesome, lovely Friday morning we had a trip to go to, which was a rehearsal. It was for the kids for Kids concert at night,I wasn’t going so I am going to talk about the rehearsal and what happened and what my favourite song was.


What we sang first was Haere mai and we had to do actions for the whole song and we were all shocked because we didn’t do any actions when we first got the songs. There were people that were coming to sing with us and their names were Jackie Clarke, Chris Clarke and the last person was Nathan King, they were a part of the kids for kids program.


When I heard the student soloists sing at the end I thought that all of the singing worked and the people who were going were ready for the nights performance.


I felt very amazed and joyful. My favourite song was ‘Welcome Home’ and ‘Glorafilia’ and I am glad to say that I felt very overwhelmed and joyful when I went back to school.

X Country

On an awesome sunny day last week we had something awesome that I had been waiting for.
Our Cross Country was held on Tuesday 13th August and all of the students of St Pius X Catholic School took part and raced against each other.  Even 10 St Mary’s College girls came to help us. The Seniors ran around the block and finished by the office. The Juniors ran around the field and finished by the big park.


When it was morning tea I wasn’t scared to go and talk to the girls so I went and talked to some of the St Mary girl’s, I met two their names were Zoe and also Liv. They were friendly and playful and they were year 13. I told them my year and then Zoe and Liv said “Wow.” After all of the talking I asked if they wanted to play tag with us and we did until we got tired.

After all of that running and chasing it was time to go   back to class and Miss G said to get changed. I didn’t get changed because I didn’t bring my clothes so I ran in my school clothes.

The Assumption

We celebrate the Assumption because it is Mary’s heavenly birthday. Her soul and her body went up to heaven and some people said she was sleeping and a miracle happened.


Her whole body went up to heaven and then when she was there in heaven she became the Queen of heaven.

Pope Pius declared to the Catholics that we should know that Mary’s body and soul went to heaven.

Mere makes cake

On a lovely day Mere’s mum and dad went out to go shopping and the mum told Mere to look after the girl. When they went 2 minutes later Mere decided to bake a lemon cake. She put her cake in the oven but when she took it out it was too runny so she took it outside and feed it to the pig and she decided to make her second cake and in the middle it sunk. Mere went outside to the pig again and when she went back she decided again to make another cake. After all of that waiting she took it out and it was burnt, so she went to her backyard and feed the pig again.


When she finished feeding it to the pig she never gave up and made her fourth cake. She put it in the oven and then when she got it out it was perfect. She put lemon icing on it and when she finished her mum and dad were already back. They noticed that mum came in first and their dad didn’t so they waited for him.
When they saw him step in the house he noticed that the pig wasn’t hungry but Mere didn’t say a word. She cut a big piece of cake for herself and ate it and then she went to sleep.

Term - 2

My favourite thing at school when it was Term 2 was playing Football and my cookie protection. Why I picked Football is because it really helped myself how to play a sport and how they can make us love Football. Also my favourite activity I did at school was my thinking key for the cookie protection.I also liked our golden time because we could go on anything but not websites that we weren’t allowed to go on.

My least favourite thing while I was at school is that we had swimming because we could not catch up with the work that was needed to be finish. Also what I didn’t like was the circuit  excercise because the teachers never let us have a rest. They just told us to keep on going until you have lose one pound and that is why I do not like the circuit.

What I am looking forward for Term 3 is the league and the kids for kids concert. I am also looking forward to embracing other cultures and also badminton and what our school is going to look like as well.

My writing about Miss G going to Melbourne and me staying and doing my work.

On a lovely Tuesday Miss G went to Melbourne and when she came back she said that she went to 8 schools. She said that she liked Melbourne because everywhere she turned she saw a restaurant and she went to go and eat there.

At the schools they had little zoos in the middle of their schools and the animals were like lizards and frogs and also they had a garden to grow veges and fruits for their school. They also had big long hands which were chairs and and they had normal chairs.

Other teachers went with her from St Patrick's, Pt England, Panmure Bridge, Tamaki College, Stonefields and she was very very excited. 

My favourite part when Miss G was gone was when we had free time when we were quiet and peaceful.

Our Pool is 15 meters long, 1 meter deep and the walls of the pool are curled like a skateboard ramp. The ground around the pool is wet like it has been raining. The water is see through like the wind and the water is calm like a mirror. It is warm like a heater but can sometimes be cold like ice.

The Pool smells like chlorine and it was very dirty at the bottom of the pool. Did you know that the pool is as deep as a pond? The water is as blue as the sky and the waves in the pool are like the waves in the sea.

I wish that we could go in the pool everyday for the whole term.
